hôtel pierre du calvet

Last month, I had the opportunity to take photos at a private party at Montreal's oldest hotel, Hôtel Pierre du Calvet. I always love covering private events, as it's such a privilege to share in the festivities of clients. I especially love smaller, intimate events because as a photographer, you have better opportunities to take photos of every guest, and present a more detailed visual story of the event.

When my lovely client Andrea told me that she and some friends would be celebrating a joint birthday with a party inspired by The Night Circus at Pierre du Calvet, I was thrilled to be available to photograph it. The guests of honour asked me to take lots of photos of the stunning details of the hotel, as they would be making a hardcover book to commemorate the experience. Here are my photos of this incredible place and the magical atmosphere of the party.

If you ever have a chance to stop in or go for a meal, I would highly recommend you do so!












In keeping with the circus theme, the hosts had arranged for a medium and a palm reader to be there and tell guests' fortunes. How awesome is the spot that Catherine Allan (clairvoyant) chose to sit and tell fortunes?






Andrea and Joyce, thank you so much for inviting me to join the Night Circus, for offering me champagne even though I was working, and for allowing me to take part in this incredibly magical event.
